Silk is naturally kinder to skin & hair, reducing friction by up to 43%, whilst also maintaining hydration, not stripping skin or hair of its natural oils. Silk is hypoallergenic, breathable, temperature regulating and uninhabitable by dust mites (recommended for eczema & asthma) giving you and your little ones the gentlest sleep possible.
Silky Tots innovative Silk bedding is recommended by dermatologists, asthma and eczema specialists. The benefits of Silk have been known and used to care for skin & hair for hundreds of years, but Silky Tots is the first company (worldwide) to make these benefits accessible and safe for babies and children.
We love our silk cot slip, we have been using it for about two weeks now and Vivienne's hair has started to grow back and the bald area has nearly gone. Before we started using the silk slip Vivienne would wake up with a very dry face and I'd have to put moisturiser on her everyday, since using the silk slip her skin has become so soft and it's never dry! Amazing xx

Prevents Baby Bald Spots
Ordinary cotton and bamboo sheets twist and snag hair causing knotting, matting and eventually the dreaded baby bald spot. So why is Silk the answer? Silk allows hair to glide over the bed, pillow or mattress surface, eliminating friction to prevent baby bald spots, frizz and knotting. Cotton can snag the hair and mess it into a nest of tangles and knots overnight.
Sleeping on silk also benefits babies that already sport a bald spot, as the reduction in friction allows the delicate new hair to come in far quicker than cotton does, greatly increasing the rate of re-growth.
Sleep Soundly without Allergens
Silk is naturally hypoallergenic due to its high protein content, which prevents the growth of micro-organisms, mould and bacteria. This incredible quality makes silk in-hospitable for dust mites and allergens - perfect for allergy sufferers or asthmatics.
Silk is also odour and soil resistant making it a much cleaner sleep material than traditional bamboo and cotton.
Silk fibres wick moisture away from the skin keeping it naturally hydrated. Traditional bedding such as cotton is much more porous than silk, so regular pillowcases and bedding absorb and hold moisture, while silk leaves that hydration right where it belongs; in the skin and hair. While Silk is moisture wicking, it is still very quick drying and allows skin to breathe.
Newborn skin is extremely delicate and prone to sensitivity, irritation, dryness, chafing and rashes. Silk’s naturally hydrating and temperature regulating properties can help keep these symptoms to a minimum (especially when bub is spending 10-18 hours sleeping on it per day!) and allow creams and treatments to do their jobs!
A Gentle Sleep for All Seasons
Silk is perfect for babies as it is an all-climate fabric; warm and cosy in winter and comfortably cool in summer when the temperatures rise (in creating a sleep-safe environment for bub, it’s important to ensure they don’t overheat).
Benefits Aren't Limited to Babies
The Silky soft surface of a Silky Tots Silk Pillow Slip is the perfect anti-ageing and hair protective sleep environment for adults too.
As celebrated Dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross explains, “Persistently pressing our faces into a pillow causes trauma to the skin. Over time, this trauma, aggravated by the friction of a cotton pillowcase, can create permanent creases as our collagen breaks down.”
Studies show that friction from tossing and turning causes creases in the skin, but a silky-smooth surface can reduce that effect in the long run.
